Fascinating....
 
Artists compared with non-artists are "better protected [against] diseases like Alzheimer's, vascular dementia and even strokes," according to Dr. Luis Fornazzari, a Toronto neurological consultant. "Art opens the mind," Fornazzari said. "It should be taught to everyone. It’s better than many medications and is as important as mathematics or history."

Neurologists at St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto have found that artists suffering from vascular dementia may still be able to draw from memory, even if unable to complete simple tasks.

Hillary Clinton has millions of fake Twitter followers. So does Donald Trump. In fact, writes +Wayne Rash , all of the candidates have fake followers. I have fake followers and you probably do, too. But does it matter? And where do they come from? The answer is: It depends.
 
+Hillary Clinton has over a million fake Twitter followers. So does +Donald Trump for 2016. The other Presidential candidates all have fake followers as well. In fact, so does nearly everyone on Twitter, just not as many. The questions is whether it matters, and for the most part it doesn't. Unless, of course, you're paying someone for Twitter mentions. https://www.yahoo.com/tech/hillary-clinton-has-more-than-a-million-fake-127692268434.html?soc_src=mail&soc_trk=ma
Should presidential candidates be concerned that a large portion of the “people” reading their tweets are a bunch of fakes?

It was early in the morning on the 1st of May 1832 in New York City. The
ordinarily gentle horse-drawn traffic of the up-and-coming metropolis
seemed a bit more dense than usual, and as the morning progressed the
avenues and boulevards became increasingly crowded. At 9:00am, almost as
if on cue, thousands of doors on thousands of buildings burst open to
vomit humans, furniture, and other sundries out into the bright morning
sun. Within moments the streets of New York were a jangling amorphous
pandemonium.

Entrepreneurs, Economic Growth, and the Enlightenment

The authors hypothesize that these early adopters used their newly acquired knowledge to build technologically based businesses that drove regional prosperity. If that’s true, then “upper tail knowledge,” as the authors put it —knowledge of new technology, from chemistry to engine building — in the hands of highly talented people who could do something with it may be a major factor in creating prosperity, one distinct from a society’s overall level of education.
